“Our Disciples have gained entry into the Trios Tournament. They will not fail again.”
Word. Welcome Believers! On this week’s episode of Lucha Underground, we have the next round of the Tag Team Trios Tournament, in which the Disciples of Death will face Fenix and two other luchadores! The other two contestants will be revealed tonight! It will be interesting to see who’s on his tag team. It shouldn’t be surprising to see face luchadores. Sexy Star comes to mind, but since she’s currently in a feud with the Moths, perhaps they’re saving her for that. It would also be interesting to see Daga, who certainly proved himself in the ring in last week’s match with Texano. There may also be a continuation in the rivalry between Fenix and Muertes with Catrina thrown in that we saw last season.
LU also announced on social media that Drago and Aero Star will have a singles match. This should be amazing, considering the skill and badassery of both luchadores and their storyline. Will “The Darewolf” PJ Black and Jack “The Dragonslayer” Evans appear at some point during the match? We’ll see. Also, there’s the possibility that this will be a match for one of the ancient Aztec Medallions, like last week’s singles match between Daga and Texano.
The Man of 1000 Deaths Mil Muertes will compete for the Lucha Underground Championship with “The Monster” Matanza Cueto! Expect to see Temple Proprietor Dario Cueto and former Proprietor Catrina at ringside. Perhaps some more of Dario’s utterances of “Remember Mother.” *shudders* Will this be another Matanza-Suplexes-and-Wins match?
I’m (excitedly) expecting at least progression in the storyline regarding the Cuetos. It sounds like this episode will focus on the Tournament and the Tag Team tournament, as well. Stay tuned at 8 P.M. tonight for exclusive live coverage!
Tonight’s Twitter buzz!
Tonight’s main event = basically a big boss fight.
One nation, underground. 10 til!
8’o clock on the dot! Here we go!
We get a recap of the Tag Team Trios Tournament so far. The Disciples’s invitation. Matanza’s destiny. Nothing will stand in his way – not even Mil Muertes.
Promo: Dario Cueto, Fenix, Drago & Aero Star
We’re in Dario’s office with him and Fenix. Fenix is lucky he survived from Matanza’s attacks. Dario has opportunities for Fenix. Tonight, he will team up with Drago and Aero Star! But Dario is reluctant because of last season’s same team-up and the disastrous results. Nope, Fenix will not team up with them – he will team with Jack Evans and PJ Black. Oh jeez. Drago and Aero Star don’t like that. Drago gives Dario the what-for. Dario has other opportunities for them – a singles match for a Medallion. Oh yes.
We’re back in the lively Temple. Their match is next!

She demanded Dario that he give him one of the Aztec Medallions. Mundo never competed for one last season, but he will next week! Makin’ Mundo work – classic Cueto. He’ll face “The Machine” Brian Cage! …In a steel cage match! “Cage in a cage.”
Don’t worry, Mundo – you’ll shut that machine down. Permanently. So says Taya.

In Dario’s office, Dario speaks to the Unlikely Trio of Son of Havoc, Ivelisse, and Angelico. Ivelisse and Havoc can’t decide who dumped who. It doesn’t matter who wins this year’s Trios Tournament, says Ivelisse, because in the end, they’re still Champions. The winners of the Trios Tournament will be the new Champions – which the Trio isn’t too happy about.
Promo: Catrina & The Disciples of Death
The Disciples and Catrina are in the locker room. She delivers some discipline. They failed miserably. But worse than that – Fenix is the one who delivers the victory. She needs a reason not to destroy them – but Muerte tears out the black hearts of Barrio and Trece! Holy crap.
